Last but certainly not least, Kingsbrook Animal Hospital in Frederick, MD, invites you to Fall In Love with our amazing veterinarians! We have six doctors who help our clients and staff members take wonderful care of our pets. Below, each of them takes a moment to answer the same question we’ve asked every employee: What’s your favorite thing about working at Kingsbrook Animal Hospital?

Dr. Cook—”My favorite thing about Kingsbrook Animal Hospital is that I get to play with puppies and kittens all day everyday!  😉  Obviously, that’s not ALL we do.  The great thing about our Hospital is that  we all work so well together.  We see so many sick and yes, sometimes dying patients.  There’s a lot of stressors that could make us not get along, but everyone here is so good at working together and solving each case as though it were a puzzle.”  Dr. Cook shared. One of the owners and founders of KAH, Dr. Cook has been one of the driving forces behind this hospital since March 1999.

It’s hard to believe that October is almost over…soon it will be the holiday season, which usually means an increased focus on family. Here at Kingsbrook Animal Hospital, we believe pets are family members, too! The increased hustle and bustle of the holidays can affect our furry friends, especially our older companions. During the month of November, our KAH blog is focusing exclusively on senior pets and specific aspects of caring for them.

In the meantime, however, Happy Halloween from your friends at Kingsbrook Animal Hospital!

Molly’s Lucky Day

Kingsbrook Animal Hospital veterinarian, Dr. Davis, and his family recently adopted an adorable puppy they named Molly! When he brought her to Kingsbrook to meet us, we couldn’t help but take the opportunity to ask him a few questions.

Melissa: Congratulations on your adoption of Molly!

MD: Thank you.. we really got lucky with her!

Melissa: What led you to the decision to adopt a dog?

MD: As with many things, it just seemed to happen.   My wife’s cousin sent me a picture of a cute puppy she wanted to adopt and asked if I would be a good-owner reference to the rescue group for her. She then told me that there were more pups from that litter, and that was pretty much it for me.   Of course, I’m pretty sure the whole thing was a conspiracy between my wife and her cousin…

Melissa: Haha! Did you do any research to help you decide what kind of dog would be a good fit for your family?

MD: We have small children and live near water, so we were thinking about a medium to large dog that liked to swim & would be more tolerant of children.   The rescue group suspected that Molly was a labrador mix, but it turns out she is mostly golden retriever, despite her coloring. We expected her to be larger, too, but we are very happy that it seems she will only weigh about 30 lbs when she is full grown.

Melissa: What is Molly’s favorite thing to do? Or maybe your favorite thing to do with Molly? 🙂

MD: Molly has lots of things she loves to do. She loves the kids, especially when they drop food from the table, she also loves to swim and chase her ball.

Melissa: And her least favorite?

MD: Her least favorite thing is getting into the car, even when it’s to go somewhere fun! We are working on that & she already seems to be less reluctant to hop in with us.

Regardless of not yet loving car rides, all of our KAH family could agree that Molly is a very lucky girl. We are so happy for Dr. Davis and his family!
